The state of Indiana is located in the Midwest United States. Indian tribes were settled in the region long before Europeans arrived in the early 1700s. Thus the state's name means "Land of the Indians." Indiana became a state in 1816. Its capital city, Indianapolis, is called the Crossroads of America because highways converge from all directions. Hogs, corn, and soybeans are important products. Indiana also borders Lake Michigan, which brings recreational and economic advantages to the state.
